Mathew Barzal 3.95 Game Score
Date: November 5th, 2017
By November 2017, New York Islanders fans knew just how good Mathew Barzal was. But on this night he’d show us a level of play that was even better. On this night Mathew Barzal would put up five assists. Five!
To put that in perspective, only five other New York Islanders players have ever put in five assists or more in a single game. Denis Potvin, Pat LaFontaine, Brent Sutter, Stefan Persson, and Mike Bossy twice.
Talk about elite company.
On this particular night, the New York Islanders welcomed the Colorado Avalanche to Brooklyn. The Isles ran out to a quick two-goal cushion in the first, with Barzal netting an assist on the second (his first of the night).
By the end of the second period, Barzal had three more assists, two from Nick Leddy goals and the third off Johnny Boychuk’s first of the year. He’d cap off the effort with a final assist in the third frame as he set up linemate Jordan Eberle for this second goal of the game.
